Waking during the night Lock Rss

Hi there,

Can anyone help me with my 11 week old baby boy? He is bottle fed and is in the routine of 5 feeds a day at 6am, 10am, 2pm, bath at 5pm, feed at 6pm and a dream feed at 10pm. He has slept through the night twice, but nearly always wakes at around 3:30am. When he wakes he is not hungry, just wanting a cuddle. He won't resettle unless I put him in bed with me, then he will sleep till about 7am! Does anyone have any ideas on how to get him to re-settle in his cot and sleep through?

Try having one of your tshirts (not washed) in the cot with him so he can smell you. Do you want to go down the line of trying to teach him to self settle? Naomi

Just a suggestion guys.

My midwife told me the reason bubby settles in bed with you is because its warm and cosy. Nights are getting much cooler now so try just adding and extra blanket and see if that helps. If bubby is not hungry then its most likely this that woke them up.
